After waiting over twenty years to buy
my first Benz - finally getting one
was an underwhelming exercise in
futility. This is a TERRIBLE car,
built like any other Pinto, Gremlin or
Vega - HONESTLY. Bad build quality,
rattles, squeaks, LOUD when driving
it, alignment that can't be fixed, a
transmission that can't be diagnosed,
and a Corporate Office that refuses to
deal with customers on ANY level
whatsoever. I was told their Director
of Customer Assistance does NOT read,
or answer his mail, nor will he
contact any customers. THIS is
Mercedes Benz? THINK TWICE IF YOU ARE
IN THE MARKET FOR A BENZ.....
Supercharged Engine, that displays its
prowess when IT wants to, not when you
want it to. Sometimes a sugar rush of
power - other times, nothing...
Corporate Customer Assistance
Department should ACTUALLY ASSIST
THEIR CUSTOMERS. The transmission on
this car is garbage. Bad build
quality - should not have RATTLES AND
SQUEAKS at 2500 - 3000 miles. I've
bought and owned 13 cars over 28
years - THIS is the worst.
